Good day.


This is a community update brought to you by PCSO Jad from Horncastle Police NPT.

We have received a number of reports of person(s) in the area knocking on doors with a card, and excuse, they are selling various items to 'get back on their feet' after serving time in prison.  This is a known technique used by criminals to commit distraction burglary or other offences.


Please be vigilant........

Do not open the door to anyone you do not know........  
Talk through a closed door, or slightly ajar open window........ 
Be sure all other doors in the home are locked before entering into conversation.....

Stay safe and report all suspicious observation(s) to the Police.

If you have witnessed, and/or heard anything suspicious, and have information, please immediately call 101 quoting incident 377 06/09/2018 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers UK on 0800 555 111

Thank you.
